Micky Hazard reacts on Twitter to Tottenham’s loss v Leicester

Tottenham were defeated 1-0 by Leicester City on Wednesday evening.

Tottenham fell to defeat on Wednesday evening, and Micky Hazard took to his Twitter account to react to the loss to Leicester City.

Hazard does praise the Foxes for being a well organised unit, having changed their style of play in recent weeks as they come to terms with being a realistic Premier League title contender.

Rather than playing the all-out attacking football of the earlier months of the campaign, Claudio Ranieri’s side are much more reserved now, holding their shape and countering when needed.

It is no surprise that no goals were from open play in the game, with Leicester taking the lead through a Robert Huth header from a corner.

Spurs had the better of the play, possessing more of the ball and creating more goalscoring chances, but they could not break through the impressive Foxes’ defence.

And whenever they did, Kasper Schmeichel was there to remove the danger in an excellent performance from the Leicester keeper.

The result leaves Spurs seven points off top spot, which is currently occupied by Leicester and Arsenal, who are joined on 43 points.

The Lilywhites remain in the hunt for the Premier League title, but the result leaves them slightly off the pace at the start of 2016.
